About Us

El Centro Inc

While times have changed since El Centro was founded in 1976, one thing that has stayed constant is our commitment to the people of Wyandotte and Johnson Counties, particularly the growing Hispanic population.

The mission of El Centro, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation, is “strengthening communities and improving lives of Latinos and others through educational, social, and economic opportunities.”

In the more than 40 years since El Centro was created, we have grown to three locations in Kansas City, Kansas and Olathe, serving more than 12,000 individuals and families per year. Our programming has evolved to include The Academy for Children, Promotoras de Salud, Health Navigation, Economic Empowerment and Advocacy and Civic Engagement.
